Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling insists he was fouled by Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma and isn’t happy with the referee’s decision not to award Manchester City a penalty.

“For me, I couldn’t get a shot off because he’s put his knee on the back of my hamstring,” Sterling told Sky Sports.

“I don’t know how it’s not a penalty, I don’t know how it’s not been reviewed properly, the ref said it’s been reviewed but at the end of the day, personally, I knew it was a penalty. I thought the VAR was here to help but it wasn’t meant to be.

“He said to me that it’s been checked, it’s been cleared, it’s not a penalty but for me it was a sure penalty.”
